The Bad
Guests sometimes offered their critique of the hotel and its services in online reviews.

Some recent room complaints were: no tea kettle, fridge froze all my food, no bottled water, pillows lumpy, grouting around the tub was worn and dingy, poor channel selection on the cable TV service, the bed was a bit small and hard, and soundproofing between floors is poor, a shortage of towels and coffee packets in the room at times.

Once in a while, guests complained about the pool being only 3 feet deep and too cold.
